#23 Youth Activism (We are Young, We Run Free)

Tonight, FNLS brings you a special interview with the three inspiring young women behind last Sunday's Youth Organised Walk for Marriage Equality. Jillian, Nicky and Nida are joined by Ally, Angie and Ciara as they prepare for the event and talk over their ideas on what young people can do for the queer causes, and vice versa.

Don't forget, if you live in Australia, please call 1300 663 679 to leave a message showing your support for marriage equality.

Lip Service Classics: Vagitarianism (Friday Night Lunch Service)

We talked about it on the Ecofeminism episode last week, and now you can hear it for yourself whether on again or for the first time.

Annie, Daria, Jess, Lydia and Nida are faced with a stereotype that lesbians are vegetarians. Is it true that Women Who Love Women are more inclined to consume plant matter? Should we be? And will Nida really make the jump way up the opposite end of the spectrum?

#21 Marriage Continued (Those United States)

Scant hours after the previous episode was broadcast, the Supreme Court of the United States made same-sex marriage legal across their entire country. But nothing changed here...or did it? Jess picks up where she left off last week and chats with Jillian and Daria about the queer week we'd just had.
